I'm sorry to hear this.I have an ailing relative that just passed away from cancer last night (expected and peaceful) so there are logistics to juggle.
It makes me wonder how much my Mom kept inside her when she was pulling off holidays all those years.
Knocked out much shopping yesterday and am ready for Black Friday.
Thanksgiving was not at all what I had expected.
- Ask for food to be brought in a thermal food carrier and/or crock pot to free up oven space.
So you help me feel justified in my keeping 3 crockpots (different sizes) and a toaster oven in the basement literally JUST for Thanksgiving!
I honestly feel like it is one of those math problems "If the train leaves the station at....."
So we peek into the box and there is SO LITTLE TURKEY! Barely 2 small slices per person! That would be okay if it was a single meal (which apparently it was) but I had ordered for lots of leftovers.
If you and any family members that might be attending future holiday celebrations can invest in a piece of the CrockPot Hook Up system, it will really help with your keeping things warm outside the oven issue. The Hook Ups connect to each other and come in three sizes, I think the sizes are one with a large round crock, one with two medium ones, and one with an oval crock.
That’s one for the books! I would love to have a Traeger. I bet that turkey was wonderful.
We always tell guest how early they can arrive (we learned the hard way for that one). Husband always confirms times with our guests. And I am a terrible host. Unless you called to tell me there’s been an accident and traffic is backed up we do not wait to eat. I generally don’t have guest bring food but if I do I have the people who have poor time management skills bring dessert or something not important to the meal. That all sounds awful when I read it but I’ve been “burned” (no pun intended) more than once.
